Industries in Paris from June 13 to 16 with delegates from 86 countries of the world or participated in the million strong demonstration through the Paris streets on June 14 the Brexit vote was no surprise In fact what was surprising was it took so long to materialise Delegate after delegate highlighted how in different countries inequalities of income were growing assets of the people were being plundered by a handful of rich and the multinationals inflation was eroding incomes while unemployment kept increasing In this background policy decisions were imposed on governments by financial institutions that have amassed huge reserves well above the total debt burden of developing countries Yet they continued to squeeze the majority of their citizens in the name of austerity measures increasing workload and hire and fire policies under the cover of creating flexibility in employment Every country in Europe has seen the dismantling of the post-war welfare state that evolved as a response to the Soviet bloc straddling nearly half of the continent But it has taken a generation for the truth to dawn on the mass of Europeans We have seen upsurges in Spain Greece France the Netherlands Sweden Poland Portugal and Italy Countries like Iceland could survive the austerity noose as they were not a part of the European Union To some the British rejection is inspired by events in that country So Brexit was coming but the British collusion in the wars of West Asia Afghanistan and the Balkans under the flag of NATO delayed the process There are still two major aspects of the people’s consciousness to tackle The first is immigration The immigrants are mostly refugees from countries attacked and destroyed by the US and NATO: Afghanistan Libya Syria Somalia and Yemen backed up by those from West and Central Africa They were the targets of attack because of their wealth in terms of natural resources and for strategic reasons linked with the new Cold War with its imagined threat from Russia China and North Korea that helped to bolster the arms trade So the Brexit fear of immigrants from Eastern Europe is as much a myth as the war threat from the East is But it creates confusion in minds suffering from the collapse of the welfare state services stagnant wages and crushing unemployment It is from this angle then that we have to cope with confusion because it exacerbates the faultlines that exist in society as the Brexit has done in the case of Northern Ireland and Scotland both of whom voted at sharp variance with England The history of hundreds of years of oppression of the Irish people who even succeeded in liberating a part of their country in the face of British obduracy has now found a voice in the pro-EU vote they have cast Scotland too while it gave the Stuart Kings to Britain never really integrated with the United Kingdom as it became the happy hunting ground of landlords who drove out the peasants and found an outlet for them in the colonies Today what is far worse is the xenophobia that has afflicted individuals The sense of losses going into trillions of dollars afflicting the predatory classes is also sought to be covered up by blaming immigrants and not the policies of the very people who followed the free market dispensation Rather than becoming the targets of their own working class they are looking for convenient scapegoats They will not only create tensions between themselves over rising and falling currencies and their effect on the imports and exports but they will divert the anger of the people from themselves to relatively helpless immigrant communities as Hitler did with the Jews Worse weaker economies will look for plunder in fresh pastures to make up for their losses actual or imagined What they need is empty threats and xenophobia rather than any real basis for conflict In such conditions destructive conflicts have been unleashed by the NATO and its allies but they are getting too close to Russia for comfort The only way to counter this is by uniting the working people as the French unions are doing and to extend the struggles against unemployment for food security keeping prices of food and education down as well as respect for the sovereignty of all national and international boundaries on the basis of mutual trust freedom of movement and respect for democratic rights

on Indian National Army trials and actor Mohit Marwah says one can not take creative liberty in the portrayal of the Army The film recreates the Indian National Army (INA) Trials or The Red Fort Trials of 1940s where Colonel Prem Sehgal Colonel Gurbaksh Singh Dhillon and Major General Shah Nawaz Khan – officers in the British Indian Army were taken as prisoners of war in Malaya Singapore and Burma respectively They were court-martialled in the capital at the trials held at the Red Fort The three men were charged with treason and torture and even case of murder was slapped on them “We had an ex-Army person on set constantly who was making sure our attire was correct our postures were right We had someone correcting us all the time we needed to have that authenticity you cannot play around with the ways of the Army” Mohit told PTI The actor says on a personal level too he looked out for references to play the character of the pre-independence era “Before coming on set we had to be mentally prepared to play characters of the 1920s I looked at my own grandfathers because they came from the same region Lahore and Peshawar I looked at a lot of pictures their body language To recreate that was very important” he adds Directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia the period film also features Kunal Kapoor and Amit Sadh The 32-year-old actor says Raag Desh puts focus on a chapter of history which perhaps not many might be aware of “It’s an absolutely relevant film This is a very important part of history which perhaps not many are aware of That’s again a big reason to be part of such a film because there is inherently so much drama in the story that we didn’t need to add anything “It’s informative but also very entertaining It’s a great topic to make a film on” The actor who made his debut with “Fugly” is keenly awaiting audience’s response to the movie “After my debut film the kind of roles which were coming my way were more or less like my first film As an actor this film gave me an opportunity to step out and do something different I made sure to give it all” Raag Desh is scheduled to release this Friday For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express

Harry Potter and Ron Weasley — delivered a passionate defence of feminism in a speech at the UN headquarters last weekend For Watson to fearlessly identify herself as a feminist at a time when many women especially celebrities are forgoing the label in order to avoid being caricatured as bitter man-haters is a powerful statement Watson is the second female celebrity in the last month to challenge the persisting misconception that feminism is a zero-sum game that elevates women and denigrates men Beyonce’s performance of a song that sampled author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s Tedx talk defining a feminist as a “person who believes in the social political and economic equality of the sexes” at the MTV Video Music Awards went viral There is a dispiriting trend of female role models rejecting “feminism” because “I love men” (Shailene Woodley) or “I hail men” (Lady Gaga) or “I don’t I think have sort of the militant drive and sort of the chip on the shoulder that sometimes comes with that” (Marissa Mayer) Feminism has a clear public relations problem in that the divisive and sometimes hateful strands within it have acquired outsize prominence Many women in positions of power — be they actors politicians pop stars or corporate leaders — sidestep discussions of gender as it pertains to their professions in particular and society in general It can be a thankless task to take a position on gender politics opening the door to sexist and misogynistic comments that objectify or dismiss as “shrill” the women who dare speak out That is why the movement must celebrate those who
